The Cavs trailed 116-113 at the time. The turnover went to LeBron James, his seventh, when his pass in the corner went to no one with 24.2 seconds left. But James did exactly what he was supposed to on the play, which was drawn up by coach Tyronn Lue out of a timeout. Neither Tristan Thompson nor Kyrie Irving followed the plan, and James suggested they forgot the play. “As a ball club that’s trying to win a championship, we can’t have you go from a timeout to the court and forget what you’re supposed to do,” James said. “It’s that simple.”

LeBron James considering 2020 Olympics

LeBron James said Gregg Popovich’s taking over as coach for Team USA basketball factors into his own decision to chase another Olympic gold. “It factors a lot,” James said Saturday, before the Cavs play Popovich’s Spurs. “I’ve said that before. He’s just a great mastermind of the game of basketball.”
James skipped the 2016 Olympics after his sixth consecutive run to the Finals. He already owns two gold medals and would be 36 when the 2020 Olympics unfold in Tokyo. Because he missed Team USA’s run to gold in Rio, he’s no longer No. 1 in U.S. Olympics for games played (24, t-2nd) or points (273, 3rd), but is still first all time in assists (88).
